The food is too $ but the wine selection is amazing. I like when I am brought on a date here since it makes for a night to look elegant with a wine glass and impress that boy/girl with my wine knowledge ;)

Check this place out!

I went on a date to this restaurant last week. We had reservations so that was not a problem, but I recommend having them because there was quite a crowd around the front. The lighting was great and noise level. I felt very comfortable in cozy. The decor was beautiful and the service was alright. Definitely could have been more attentive to our needs. The food was delicious and drinks were yummy.



This is a nice little spot tha...

This is a nice little spot that you can take friends or a date to. They have a mix of small plates and larger plates which you can share around the table. My suggestion is to have 2 or 3 small plates and one large plate for 3 people, depending on appetite. First crush has a young atmosphere and is also a good spot to hang out with friends for a drink.

Although services were pleasant, there's nothing romantic about this location. Perhaps, because the restaurant is in the lower floor with low ceiling and narrow surrounding, noise got trapped. It's a noisy restaurant. Food is OK. Nothing impressive to compensate for its pricie menu. Most will assuming that a noisy place is good for large group. In my opinion, this place is too noisy for large group (of 10 people). You can't hear someone down at the other end of the table!

um, not so much

This restaurant just doesn't do it for me; starting with the cramped layout, to the blah wine selections, to the food. Nothing offensive, but in a city with all the options of SF, I won't return.

First Crush

Great place for dates or a night out with the girls! Very quaint and peaceful and the food is delicious! I highly suggest their salmon I've ever had! And their wine selection is very good!

Not impressed

My first visit to First Crush was a disaster and I can honestly say I will never go back. Despite the fact that we had reservations, apparently we didn't reserve far enough in advance and were seated in the bar area upstairs. There is nothing remotely romantic about this area as it is loud and there are waiters rushing back and forth with drinks, and I couldn't move my chair back because there was a pipe sticking out of the wall blocking it. We tried asking the hostess if we could be seated downstairs, and clearly she was used to people getting upset by second rate seating because she tossed her hair and gave us an incredibly rude response. In fact, I think she made me more mad than the bad seating did!

This trip really ruined our evening and put both of us in a bad mood. We should have done what we saw several other people do and leave as soon as it was clear we were getting 'second rate' seating.
